Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a German painter renowned for his unique expressive style incorporating an abstract language of pictorial symbols and signs. Arrows, letters, musical notation and ancient hieroglyphs frequently appear in his enigmatic paintings. A fundamental avant-gardist, Klee was a peer of Kandinsky and teacher at the Bauhaus. His individual approach resists categorisation, although there are influences of Expressionism, Cubism and Futurism. Also a musician, Klee believed in the link between music and painting which manifests in the visual rhythm of his work. Our collection of Klee prints includes his best loved works.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by found Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
This is an outstanding example of Klee's abstracts. The colours are strong and well-balanced with good impact. The overall effect is a little on the dark side and does well on a bright background (and dark frame) in a relatively large wall space. Wonderful.
